As a new client signing up to GoHire it can take a little bit of time to get your jobs promoted across our partner job board Indeed.
Whilst other job boards will approve your jobs instantly, Indeed has a manual process in place to ensure the content on their platform keeps their users safe. Specifically, with Indeed, there may be a number of reasons why your jobs aren’t displaying.
Indeed do what’s best for jobseekers and aim to provide the best jobseeker experience. Their goal is to display unique, quality job postings that are as close to the original hiring source as possible. The Search Quality team is constantly evaluating listings to ensure that their quality guidelines are met.
If your jobs aren’t displaying on Indeed or you're in any doubt about job postings on Indeed you can drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will help you out as quick as we can.
Below are some general guidelines:
Verify your email
You must verify your email when you sign up for your new GoHire account to get full access to all our features such as job board publishing.
Use your company email
You must be using a company email such as email@example.com and not a personal account like gmail, hotmail, or yahoo.
Your jobs won't display on Indeed if the 'Employment Type' you add is internship, work experience, or volunteer.
Each posting should represent a real and currently available job
Simply put, the job should be a job. Indeed does not allow postings such as product/service advertisements, training courses, business opportunities, or especially fraudulent listings.
Detailed job descriptions
Clear titles and detailed job descriptions result in higher conversion rates. Job descriptions should contain more than a couple of sentences and preferably include items such as a company overview, day to day responsibilities of the role, qualifications needed, etc.
Unique, non duplicate jobs
Duplicate listings, among multiple sources or within a single source, will not be approved for organic visibility. It’s confusing for jobseekers to see multiple versions of the same job from different sources. Indeed does their best to filter out duplicate listings and highlight the single source that provides the best job seeker experience.
General recruitment/location blasted jobs
General recruitment jobs typically include some of the following characteristics, identical descriptions in multiple locations, mentions of hiring for multiple roles in one job posting, mentions of no experience necessary or flexible hours, and references self employment and commission only salaries. These types of jobs are not suitable for organic visibility on Indeed.
Reposting of jobs
The longer the job stays posted, the further it will fall in Indeed's organic search results. Reposting the job very frequently to have it placed higher in their search results is not accepted. If the jobs start to see a significant decrease in traffic we recommend sponsoring the job.
Short/easy apply process
In general, the application process should be short and simple. Jobs should not require the jobseeker to pay any registration, application, training, or signing fees.
Don't add 'Apply to this email'
In your GoHire job descriptions, it is not necessary to add ‘Send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org’ or similar. It is confusing and misleading to applicants, they can apply directly with the Apply Now buttons on Indeed and GoHire job pages.
Link to your GoHire jobs
You should where possible link to your new GoHire jobs from your company website, or be prepared to provide a reason to Indeed why you haven’t done so.
Integrations switched on
Ensure in your settings you have the right integrations switched on, so that your jobs will display on the job boards you want them to.
USA & Canada Recruitment Agencies
There has been a change where all USA & Canada Recruiter sources will only qualify for Sponsored Only visibility. Sponsoring jobs on Indeed will not only help recruiters gain more visibility in search results, but it will also provide all recruiting/staffing agencies with increased opportunities to find the right fit for their job postings. This update only relates to USA & Canada Recruitment Agencies.
